Rossini and Mozart
Rossini’s opera La Gazza Ladra dates from 1812. In this work’s popular overture, we’ll hear why Rossini is known as ‘Monsieur Crescendo’. While composing, Mozart took into account the qualities of the performing musicians available to him. He wrote his Clarinet Concerto in A major, K 622 especially for virtuoso
Anton Stadler, who had an instrument with ‘such a soft and charming sound, no one with a heart can resist it’.
In 1884-85, Dvořák wrote his Seventh Symphony in D minor, op. 70, a relatively dark and aggressive work, which has, according to the composer, ‘not one note too many’. In this piece Dvořák adhered more than ever to the traditional symphonic form.
